Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Holiday report of Forum goodness sighting.... via Elbow and Althea Rose

I'm not spending much time in the forum hoopla these days. I'm listening to a lot of Greensky Bluegrass and loving it. Dead- wise I'm listening to mid to late 70's mostly while writing up the daily notes.

I was a fortunate guest of Elbow at a holiday party (damn he makes some great chili !) and was privileged to gaze upon a couple of beautiful framed fabric art pieces from none other than Althea Rose hanging on his living room wall! Elbow told me they were a kind thank you for sharing music.

The forum can be a wonderful place. A fine thought as we deadhead into a new year.

Be well, forumites.

Nice to see you and the missus again and thanks for bringing the growler of Dale's Deviant Ale. A good match for the chili! I seem to recall there are a lot of chili cookers on this forum. I did not use any of the recipes that were posted here a few years back but did manage to make 3 very different ones that imo all were pretty tasty.

Yes, that other Rose in my life did a nice job of framing those gifts from our forum Rose.

Per our conversation here's a recent Greensky Bluegrass show with an interesting Dead detour and a good set list:

I'll be listening to the Dead in Milwaukee '78 this afternoon settling up things on my final workday of 2012.

Happy New Year Everyone!

Glad to see L fessed up on the great chili rip-off of my imagination; I was sure he had attained the perfect green chili, having stolen my Forum Version!?!

;)

Also, though I will accept that the chiffarobe owed by me to Arb may not surpass Rose's handiwork, certainly the crendenza smashed to bits by the postal workers of New England most certainly did...speaking of unsung heros, I must invoke my alter ego: never before in the annals of Forumite giving has so much been owed by so many to so few...Arbuthnot.

I did not make a green chili so no i didn't rip you off. Besides, given your tendency to apply the earlier is better philosophy to so many aspects in your life, i decided that your recipe calling for peppers dried before 1971 was not really that appealing. All kidding aside, we have been doing a chili holiday party with some regular frequency for about 20 years. We rotate chili with other foods, so we hadn't done it since 2009. Last year was a bust due to illness but the year before was one of our other regular menus, 3 types of lasagna and a big pot of "gravy" with meatballs and sausage.

Chili #1 was a basic American (meat and beans) recipe that i have doctored a bit over the years. I sub pablanos for green bells and a lot more chili powder than the old recipe called for.

Chili #2 - Texas Roadkill Chili. No beans, lots of meat (19 lbs total in the pot), some tomato sauce and lots of zinfandel make up the sauce. Best washed down with cold beer and angioplasty.

Chili #3 - Vegetarian Chili. The anti-Roadkill with lots of beans, peppers, carrots garbanzos, tomatoes and bulgar wheat for texture.

And fortunately didn't divorce you for getting a gift from another woman :-)

Glad you and your family are enjoying it! I could start a business. I'd happily shop for cool fiber art/handicrafts/Dead-y stuff for anyone who wants some! Though I'm afraid any credenzas and chifferobes might arrive in pieces ... but then, they'd be likely to end up that way, anyway, once exposed to SDH's recs.

I must say that whenever in the presence of quality furnishings or treasured artworks, I typically refrain from indulging in any activity that could result in any unfortunate destruction of property.

This lesson came about following one black day in NYC. It was there I learned the hard way to never combine a trip to the MFA with an iPod chock full of fine shows. Perhaps one day they will let me back in...
